Full-size megazooms compared
Call them bridge cameras, longzooms, superzooms, or megazooms (as we do), they're all pretty much the same thing: a large lens slapped on the front of a point-and-shoot camera.
While that's a bit of an oversimplification, the fact remains that though these are full-featured models with digital SLR-style bodies, their photo quality and shooting performance are still those of a compact camera. However, some are definitely better than others. ©2014 CBS Interactive Inc., a CBS Company. All rights reserved. Used by permission
